The Grosse Horloge at Rouen.

Issue 18 and Volume 1892 12.

The Grosse Horloge at Rouen. The great clock of Rouen has lately been restored, the dial plates have been decorated with a polychrome ornamentation similar to what they had in 1529, with allegorical cars and personages in gold and colors. This curious restoration of sixteenth-century work has been carefully done by M. Sauvageot. The strengthening of the arch and the rebuilding of a little house at the foot of the tower, known as the “Loggia,” are now being carried on. The work was begun in 1890.
